From the time your child's first tooth emerges to how much pain it causes, teething is a different experience for every child. Here's how to spot the signs that your baby is teething so you know how to treat the discomfort.
Signs that your baby is teething
Symptoms can last for just a few days, right around the time a new tooth is emerging, or for as long as several months if a lot of teeth come through all at once. For a few lucky babies (and parents), teething doesn't cause any noticeable signs at all. What's tricky is that there's no single set of teething symptoms.

"No more than a third of babies have any one symptom," says pediatrician Deb Lonzer, chairperson of the department of community pediatrics at Cleveland Clinic Children's Hospital. "So, one-third of the kids might drool, another third might be irritable, and another third might have trouble sleeping."
These are common signs of teething:
Swollen, bulging gums
A tooth visible below the gumIrritability
Trying to bite, chew, and suck on everything
Rubbing her face
Grabbing her ears
If you notice several of these symptoms together, it's very likely that your child is teething – but there's always the chance that it's something else.
